Garlick Name Meaning

Jewish (American): Americanized form of Gorelik. English (chiefly Lancashire): from Middle English garlek ‘garlic’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a grower or seller of garlic or perhaps a nickname for someone who ate a lot of garlic. An alternative derivation of the English name is from an unrecorded survival into Middle English of the Old English personal name Garlac, which is composed of the elements gar ‘spear’ + lac ‘sport’, ‘play’. German: altered form of Garlich (see Gerlich).
